the dirt podcast

This is a podcast about tree planting in the forest industry. The Dirt is a place to shed light on the culture that is mostly contained within those who have stuck a shovel in the ground.
Do you want to learn more about tree planting? Have you had a friend go tree planting and come back a totally different person, but you don’t understand why? Are you a tree planter and have a crazy story to share? Are you a planter who had a bad day and need someone who gets it to cheer you up? Are you nostalgic about your planting days and want to reminisce? This is the spot!

Cover art is by tree planter Bethany Davis from her illustration series “Follow the trees”


Episode 67: From the Block to the Break with Melissa Morrison The Dirt: Confessions of a Tree Planter

Bitches and Barrels (but actually nice girls and small waves) is an organization aimed at building a community to get more rad women into the water. Melissa Morrison is the brainchild of this sweet operation, and she brought with her the skills she learned in the planting industry to do so. We chat about Melissa’s career and her quick rise up the management ranks, which from hearing her talk is clearly not surprising. We cover her time as a supervisor and how that shaped the beginning days of B&B, into what it is now, a thriving organization with booked out trips and many women who are living life together on a surfboard.
